The plan is to try and retain some patina with new running gear in places required.

So far the frame is a fair bit more different than from the Honda CUB family so this might not be the simple bolt in job I expected, hence the grinder on standby. Getting the carb to fit will  the least fun! Que Rotator Adapter

If anyone speaks to the wife . . . all the above only cost a box of beer! 

LETS DO THIS

Drill motor casing out slightly to suit 10mm bolts (I normally do this on the 125's Lifan's also)

Just the look I was going for.

Found a tube that perfectly sleaves the standard bars giving  22mm Or 7/8", allowing the bar junk to bolt up nicely and throttle spin freely, Feels good! Took a fair bit of head scratching. Was Just about to re fabricate C90 bars to suit.

Found a guy down in Nelson selling  Honda C50/70 Kickstart Lever 's which used to be difficult to find, they work well because they have an offset hook to clear the exhaust on the downward STROKE. I took a punt buying it at work without chcking the Thumpstar's spline diamater which turns out is the larger 16mm. But the wifes C90 needed a new one anyway so no loss.  Would work fine on the 125cc's I would say.   

Spent agess trying different rear sprokets to match the pitbikes 428 chain, Honda's are slightly different PCD and have a larger centre so tried the AX100's being from the same family and perfect snug fit.

Little experiment. Made a flute . . .  (will wrap it with some muff stuff if it actually does whistle)

the engine end of the tube is capped with the notched plate to keep it centred
